    Our driver is doing fine, he is back at home in Texas. Tieguy posted a lot of inside info on the UPS Headlines Forum.

    UPS took very good care of the drivers family, flying them up to be with him.

    I agree with this, it sounds like our folks in the Baltimore Hub took great care of this guy. Glad to know he is doing well. There are a lot of idiots out on the streets, this could happen to any of us.

    Do you really think this comment was appropriate given the circumstances?

    Definitely not. No the shooter was some thug who got :censored2: at the driver for some unknown reason. He probably rode beside our driver for at least 5 to 10 seconds before he decided to pull out his 9mm and shoot at him. Hope they catch him and hang him.

    Kudos to the driver’s wife!! Imagine getting the phone call and having to schedule a flight and the uncertainty she must have felt. Its one thing to drive across town to a hospital, she had fly across several states! She had to have been wondering if everything was really OK.

    Kudos to UPS, too. Sounds like the wife didn't have to schedule anything, it was all taken care of.

    For sure!! The UPS folks deserve any and all praise for the way this was handled!

    My point was that you don't just walk up to the counter and say "I'm ready to leave NOW!". The wait, the flight, looking for the person meeting her on the other end that she's never seen before.

    The driver was very lucky.

    It is so sad that some low-life could walk up to any of us, our friends, or our families and end our life without a second thought.

    It's a scary world we live in where people have no regard for human life.

    I was glad to hear he was ok. I happened to be sitting at the Balt. hub, waiting for my loads, when this happened.
